Can you get pregnant before your period?

Can you get pregnant before your period?

You can at any time: A healthy woman in her reproductive year can become pregnant at any time during her cycle, though the chance is greatest during/around time of ovulation and less so during active menstrual flow. It is difficult to know exactly when you ovulate, hence the chance of pregnancy any time. If you don't want pregnancy yet, use protection at all time--pills and/or condoms. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

Can you get pregnant a day before your period?

Not likely. . .: I assume you mean get pregnant by engaging in unprotected sex a day before expected menses. It's unlikely b/c ovulation occurs 2wks prior to menses.
